Copper is durable
It offers high resistance to the elements with the benefits of low maintenance, as it needs no painting or extra finishing, or even cleaning. So think about copper if your project crates areas that are going to be hard to access after completion. In addition, this material is unlikely to be affected by the underside corrosion, which is the most popular cause of roofing failures.
Copper is available in a variety of colours
There are a number of colours, known as russet, chocolate, plum, mahogany, and ebony. Yet, in time it will gain a lovely, sought-after, green patina finish, which offers additional protections. It is a natural process, but it takes patience for the effect to reach its full strength. If you are after that type of finish now, talk to us about pre-patinated finishes, contact us on 07538586996 or 07787810759 and we’ll be able to advise on the best solution.
Copper is extremely flexible
Due to its plasticity it’s an ideal material to cover irregular and unusual structures – including domes. New techniques of installation aid quick and secure application of copper over even asymmetrical surfaces.
Copper is lighter than roof tiles
When installed on the roof, it weighs approximately a quarter of what a similar surface covered with roof tiles would. So it is ideal to cover large spaces, especially ones designed to incorporate dynamic lines, curves and sharp angles.
Copper can be used outdoors and indoors
Modern architecture and interior design promote copper as an ideal material for handrails, bathroom fixtures and counter tops; this trend ties exterior elements with accessories in your home, creating a unified and defined look. What is more, copper’s antimicrobial properties has been proven not so long ago, which leads to it’s growing popularity as a material of choice.
To sum up:
- Longevity and low maintenance
- Variety of colours and finishes (including a pre-patinated finish giving you that classic look from day 1)
- Flexibility, it covers even complex surfaces
- Lightweight, suitable for large areas
- Can give you a great look inside and outside
It’s a fantastic material for daring designers and homeowners wishing to combine unusual shapes with a classic finish. Contact us to choose the best option for your project.
